Homemade Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread

If you are a fan of chocolate cream , you owe it to yourself to try this healthier (and tastier) chocolate hazelnut spread! Delicious, chocolate, and nutritious!

 

Ingredients

 

 

12 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, 3 oz
34 cup hazelnut, about 4 oz
23 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 tbsp honey
18 tsp kosher salt
1 baguette, sliced and toasted
1 fruit, such as apples, pears, pineapple, and/or banana, sliced

Directions

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Arrange hazelnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes until lightly toasted. While still hot, wrap nuts in a clean kitchen towel and let them sit for a few minutes. Rub the nuts vigorously in the towel to remove most of the skins. Cool completely.
  3. Put chocolate chips in a small bowl and place over a saucepan of barely simmering water. Stir occasionally until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Cool to room temperature.
  4. Grind hazelnuts in a food processor until pasty (the nuts will be stuck to the sides of work bowl), about 1 minute. Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add sweetened condensed milk, honey, and salt. Blend well, scraping down the bowl as needed. Add cooled chocolate and pulse until combined. Transfer the spread to a small bowl. Serve with toasts and sliced fruit.
  5. Cook’s Note: The chocolate can also be melted in a microwave. Microwave the chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl in 15 second intervals until the chocolate is very soft. Stir until melted and smooth.
